An eventful day continued on Long Beach and Short Beach in Stratford with a decent amount of the federally and state protected Piping Plovers.
Walking miles of coastline, I was bound to find some. I didn’t spend much time photographing them giving their status, so when spotted, I would snap a few photos and move on. All in all, I found a total of 5-6.
The real treat was finding a pair at sunset foraging near the ocean at Short Beach. Again, I kept my distance. They really are a cute little bird. I managed to get quite a few acceptable photos to share, so I hope you like them!
